New Play Reading From Author of "White Buffalo"


Purple Rose Theatre Company Actors from the Purple Rose Theatre Company (PRTC) will perform a reading from a new play from the author of "White Buffalo". This play will have its world premiere production at the Purple Rose in summer 2013. 

 Miles and Ellie are two American teenagers in love when a youthful misunderstanding breaks them apart. Flash forward 20 years and a divorced and disenchanted Ellie has come home to lick her wounds. There isn't much time to mope however when she learns that Miles is still in town and is still carrying a torch for her. Is it possible to get a second chance at your first love? This charming and funny world premiere by Don Zolidis will make you wonder "what if?"


Please join us for the performance and share your thoughts with PRTC Creative Director Guy Sanville and the actors.

Our panel of experts will explain. Presentations will be followed by a question and answer session.

Library Earns Two "Best of Show" Awards for Publicity Materials 


The Chelsea District Library can now add two more awards to its resume: "Best of Show" in two categories: library newsletter and promotion of a website.


The Library Leadership and Management Association  (LLAMA) Public Relations and Marketing Section (PRMS) PR Xchange Committee announced today the results of this year's "Best of Show" competition for library publicity materials.  Several hundred entries in print and electronic formats were submitted from a wide array of libraries around the country including public, academic, school, state, and consortiums. Entries were appraised on the quality of the content, originality, design, format and effectiveness.


The library entered its fall 2011 newsletter and print materials promoting the library's local history website, Stories of Chelsea. Both entries won "Best of Show" in its class; libraries with annual operating budgets under two million dollars.


Best of Show Entries 


"The "Best of Show" awards are another significant tribute to the dedication of the Chelsea District Library to providing the highest degree of quality service to our library patrons and community. Anna Cangialosi is the marketing coordinator and mastermind behind the design, branding, and layout of our newsletter and deserves all of the accolades and recognition for her efforts and talents. We are very proud of her and of our extraordinary Library for winning such a prestigious honor!" says Bill Harmer, Director of the Chelsea District Library.
